CFD Events Calendar, Event Record #27585

The digital transformation of the building industry is underway - keyword “Building Information Modelling – BIM”. The added value of digital models extends far beyond the traditional methods of building planning. The SimXp seminar on 13 and 14 March 2019 in Holzkirchen, Germany, will show how to combine simulation and experimentation to benefit from digitalisation.
Date: March 13, 2019 - March 14, 2019

The focus of SimXp are digital planning tools for 
optimising energy efficiency and indoor climate. The 
seminar is organised by the Fraunhofer Institute for 
Building Physics IBP and the simulation specialists of 
ISimQ. Digitalisation and the resulting information 
density are the prerequisites for life cycle-oriented, 
integral building planning. Thanks to BIM, 
interdisciplinary project teams will be able to link the 
requirements from architecture, building physics, 
technical building services, facility and energy 
management to an unprecedented degree and develop 
comprehensive solutions based on this information. 
Digitalisation is taking place across all phases, from 
drafting to commissioning and operational optimisation. 
Early simulations of the thermo-energetic behaviour and 
computer-aided models for evaluating the resulting 
comfort and user acceptance are the starting point for 
innovative building system solutions. They form building 
blocks of a digital building twin, i.e. a virtual 
building image for planning and operation.

SimXp aims at engineers, project managers and executives 
responsible for research and development, innovation 
management and business development in the construction
